Morgan Truck Body Locates Manufacturing Center in Plainfield, Connecticut

04/02/2018
Morgan Truck Body, North America’s largest manufacturer of medium-duty truck bodies, plans to expand its footprint into New England, by locating a manufacturing facility approximately one hour east of Hartford, at 85 Moosup Pond Road in Plainfield, Connecticut.

The facility will encompass over 175,000 square feet and be capable of supporting production of a combination of 3,000 dry freight and reefer truck bodies annually. Morgan expects to employ approximately 140 team members.

According to company officials, equipment move-in will begin this summer with plans to open and become operational during this year’s fourth quarter. The facility will be Morgan’s 13th in the US and Canada and there are plans to add a 14th in the Midwest in the near future.

“As Morgan continues to set revenue records, the need to increase capacity, as well as locate production closer to our customers, is an important part of improving customer service”, said Paul Jarossy, Director of Marketing and New Business Development.

“We’re excited for the opportunity and value this plant will offer our New England-area customers. We’re recruiting the best talent to assure that delivering Morgan’s industry-leading quality products and service will always be our top priority,” added Robert Baycroft, Operations Director for the New England plant.

A premier producer of truck and van bodies in North America for over 65 years, Morgan specializes in the manufacture of Class 3 to Class 7 (GVW) box truck/straight truck bodies to serve the dry freight and refrigerated industries.
